Selecting the right venue
The first thing as a wedding planner, you have to look for is the right venue that would fulfill all the key requirements of the event. First, you have to know how many guests, family members will arrive, and what special features need to be put in the marriage venue (tea store, selfie stand, refreshment stall et cetera). After knowing how many people will come to the event, you have to select the marriage hall (after taking the view of the client) that will fulfill the requirement keeping the minimum standard for social distancing in mind.
As any big event as a marriage ceremony involves the participation of a lot of people, a risk assessment by the wedding planner is essential. The risk assessment will help you identify any problem you may face, which in turn will give you ample opportunity to find adequate solutions should those problems arise. To ensure a comprehensive risk assessment of the venue, you must have a checklist with which you should compare with the wedding venue to figure out the likely challenge you may face to enforce strict social distancing norms and other protocols that are essential during an epidemic.
One of the most common mediums through which the COVID-19 infection can spread from one person to another is food and water. Therefore, as a wedding planner, you have to ensure proper hygiene and those people who are handling the food and drinks follow a safety protocol. Additionally, you should serve only plated food and the buffet should be dropped altogether. Furthermore, the food tables should be placed at a distance and the waiters should wear safety gloves and mask while serving food. You can also provide pre-packed lunches and instead of tea and coffee stations, you can offer them premade drinks.
You should have an emergency plan in place so that in case you identify a COVID-19 19 patient who is unknowingly attending the marriage ceremony, then how to safely remove him/her from the venue and keeping all the guests safe. To ensure that the guests who are arriving are tested at the gate itself, you should have an infrared thermometer and hand sanitizers ready there with trained personnel who can quickly identify any patient of COVID-19 and do not let him/her enter the venue.
